“Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture” (Psalm 100:3).

For a culture such as ours, that breeds narcissistic preoccupation and fascination with one’s self, the words of the psalmist are a timely reminder that in matters of praise and worship, God is the object of our adoration. The corporate gathering of God’s people is not a private altar to draw attention to the individual worshiper, but a sacred altar where we, together, express ourselves in a way that draws attention to the One we worship.
